My wife's 2012 11" MBA streams Amazon Prime Instant Watch to our AppleTV via AirPlay Mirroring and it plays just fine.


If the device plays it back with good fps, I would think that AirPlay would be fine.


Since you seem to have the 720p movie file, I would recommend using a program like Beamer (http://beamer-app.com/) to stream the video to your AppleTV.  I use it with my 2009 MBP and it works like a champ.  I've tested up to 1080p .mkv files and it worked just fine.
